anyone tried this?

How exactly does it fit into the concept of being "universal"?
Equal length lines, knots in the front and loops in the back

Re: Maneuverable Seat Harness

Does anyone tried Mystic Foil https://www.mysticboarding.com/products/kite/men/waterwear/harnesses/foil-seat-harness#000000 ? Maybe even can compare to Dakine Vega? I have the mystic foil and love it, much better than the ...

so stall means, that you are riding too slow and falling down on the water Surface, Right?
Yes except for low aspect wings which have some play between when they start to stall and when they fall down

Re: Small stabilizers

Then the opposite also exists, namely that really short fuselages with big elevator can give you a super narrow "loop" radius, so for aerobatics this can be extremely fun. For a hydrofoil, we dont use the control surface(s) the same way, as we steer by weightshift and yaw input instead, so the agil...

Re: Small stabilizers

Less drag? Yes a tad, but not really worth mentioning, so shouldnt be a deciding factor. 8) Peter 30% smaller, I'd have thought more than a tad... Did some fast calculations, and a 30 % smaller stab with say a 1200 cm2 wing, would only decrease the overall drag about 2 % even in the most ideal scen...

Re: DIY Neo Strutless?

In another thread about cutting struts someone recommended to try to fly the kite with the struts uninflated.

Re: Mystic Foil Seat Harness

I love the mystic foil harness. It sits super low and when you twist the knob it locks on to the hip and does not move anymore. It is comfortable and leaves the most freedom for leg movement out of all seat harnesses i tried, which were ion echo and duotone radar. The radar put a lot of load on my l...

Re: Love Love Love My Peak 4 8m Wondering About 11m - Reviews Anyone?

I tried the peak4 in 11m last weekend on land and it is the slowest kite i have ever tried. It was very little wind and it did not want to stay in the air at the lower edge if the wind window. After all the high praise i probably expected a bit too much. Next to me was a guy with cabrinha fx (i thin...
